This Small Intimate wedding with Taya & Trevor was extra special for me, since it was my friends getting married!
When Taya first told me about her and Trevor’s plan to have a small surprise wedding in the mountains in Nordegg, I was over the moon! Taya has always been one of the kindest people I’ve ever met, selfless to her very core, So to be apart of her & Trev’s special day was a huge honor for me. The grandness of being able to give something back to a truly selfless person is one of the greatest gifts I get as a photographer.
The day started perfect! When I opened the door to Trev’s Cabin & Trev was wearing a unicorn onsie. Taya had done her own hair & make-up & she had a pile of letters from her family. I loved how Taya & Trev choice to get ready together, making the morning just theirs.
Not going to lie, I absolutely LOVE when the groom helps the bride into her wedding dress. while there is magic in “the moment” he first sees her, there is a different, steady, deep committed feeling in sharing that moment as a couple.
and don’t get me started on how adorable is was to see Trevor fumble with Taya’s jewelry.
Arriving at the church, Trev & Taya’s family were waiting for them on the front steps.
Taya’s Brother officiated the ceremony & her sister sang them down the aisle.
Their uncle said a few words and gave them their first bible as a couple. I loved the moment he held up one of their engagement photos & spoke of how the light could represent Jesus.
When they made their way out of the church, we found out a blizzard had rolled in!
Even though it was a small intimate wedding, they all filled up the church stairs!!
We had to cut our photos short due to the ridiculously cold and wet blizzard we were trying to shoot in!
We arrived back early at the Nordegg Lodge and Trev & Taya were able to spend time with their guests.
They had the BEST supper- cheese burgers, fries & Gravy!!
And the cupcakes!!!! I may have eaten a handful
The storm finally passed & we were able to go outside for some family & group photos.
Congratulation Taya and Trevor, Your wedding day was perfect!
